I just sampled a great many beers in Mexico, most mediocre at best, although I will endeavor to provide a focus on any differences I was able to discern and will also attempt some degree of objectivity. This one is actually harder to find than Corona and Pacifico, at least in Cabo San Lucas and surrounding area. Finally snagged one at an American burger joint. A pale yellow, maybe just a hair darker than Corona, with obvious effervescent fizz but no true head of which to speak. Aroma is the expected meld of creamed corn, skunk, rank grass, and ever so subtle citrus fruit notes. Little in the way of aroma per se, though. Again, just a hair more flavor than Corona but a near clone thereof, less corn and perhaps more of a citrus and grape candy note. In other words, slightly more mainstream lager "character". Does not improve as it warms, needless to say. Nil hop aroma or flavor but plenty of skunk in this here example. Far too fizzy, which serves to mask the few flavor elements present. Not great. Not worth a serious tasting session.

Not the worst Mexican AAL I've tasted, but pretty bad even with a lime in it.
